Bunch O' Balloons

Leroy's girlfriend doled out only one duty to him on the day of her brother's birthday party: bring the balloons and don't get jacked up on the way.

That's kind of hard to do when he has to cross one treacherous river, weave through a gypsy camp, and accidentally find himself an innocent bystander in the middle of a gang war.

He might have lost a pinky toe and he's pretty sure one of the gypsies picked his pocket, but by golly every last one of those balloons made it unscathed. Except the green one; Leroy's pretty sure the green one got spat on by a Crip.
Leroy and his balloon bundle are painted on a 5.5"x5.5" canvas and sealed with a thick coating of protective varnish, giving it a nice sheen.
